Learn to produce computer-aided mechanical drawings of components and assemblies.
This program provides you with the skills necessary to produce computer-aided mechanical drawings of components and assemblies of industrial machines, machinery parts, and other mechanical equipment.
You will hone your problem-solving and drafting skills through practical assignments, where you must think through the process of drawing development. You will spend a significant portion of the program learning about and producing drawings using computer-aided drafting (CAD). You will be trained on a wide variety of software programs such as recent releases of AutoCAD, Solid Edge and Inventor, to give you the experience required to develop technical drawings.
As the year progresses, you will be asked to demonstrate planning, research and analytical abilities as you undertake project design work.
As a graduate, you will possess skills in the following areas:
- Computer operation
- Basic manufacturing processes
- Quality control inspection
- Geometric dimensioning and tolerance
- Heat treatment
